Art Classes and Workshops April, May, and June 2016

A Message from the Instructor: 
During my classes and workshops I strive to create a positive and encouraging environment for my students to feel inspired. In all my classes I work one on one with each student with the belief that not one student is at the exact same skill level as another nor do the students have the same tastes in style or preference in artist practice, each person is unique and brings something different to class. My goal is for students to leave feeling confident to continue to practice their skills and create art at home.
